Well done Jet2 and I hope this becomes standard practice for other airlines.
Aside of their other selling points, I think for many ordinary holidaymakers after a stress free time, their attitude to towards morons who try to make other passenger's life a misery is one of the biggest reasons for travelling with them.

All other airlines need to watch and learn.

Two in a week!!

Here are details of the second judgement Jet2 got, this time at Carlisle County Court 2 days earlier: Drunk passenger banned from Jet2 and ordered to pay compensation after causing severe disruption on Edinburgh flight - Daily Record

Strong management taking a stance against idiots who disrupt life for ordinary travellers..Well done

Can anyone from Jet2 translate the following message into a factual explanation?

We’re sorry our online check-in limit, of seats that we can allocate automatically, has been reached so we’ve switched you to airport check-in. Please do not worry, there isn’t a problem with your booking and your seat(s) will be allocated at the airport. Please note you will not be charged any additional fees for collecting your boarding pass at the airport.
Needless to say I'm pretty p!ssed off with Jet2. I selected online check-in as I'm travelling with hand luggage only and with a departure time of 07:30 I planned to arrive at GLA at around 06:30 and go straight to the departure gate. Now it looks like I'll have the joys of getting up an hour earlier, leaving the house an hour earlier and spending an hour more than planned hanging about an airport terminal at silly o'clock in the morning. All so I can have some teenager wearing a copious amount of make-up ask me if I packed my bags myself.

Thank's very much Jet2.

Thomsons do the same. They only have a certain percentage of seats available for OLCI. After they've all been allocated you can only check in at the airport. If you're late to check in online, or a lot of people have already prebooked seats then you're out of luck.

I would suggest that if you arrive at the airport at 06:30 you'll still be fine. Check in closes about 40 mins before departure, if there's a queue you will get pulled out and moved to the front of the queue.

For an explanation, airlines have to keep a certain percentage of seats unreserved for those that don't pre-book them, the way to prevent this from happening to you again you should check-in online sooner.

The issue here is that having a certain number of seats available allows opportunities to resolve any potential seating issues.

PRM customers may be in unsuitable seats, Families may be split up etc.

You never know, you may get a extra legroom seat if everything else has been taken up.

Thomson Airways aslo doe exactly the same and so do many others.

Been 5x 738s working at NCL last few days and 5x set to depart tomorrow when only 4x 738s have been allocated all Summer. Has a 733 been upgraded ?

Probably just movement of the fleet to cater for 1/2 term. Scottish 1/2 terms are different weeks, so the extra aeroplanes might have been swapped round with GLA or EDI to provide extra capacity.

Well they are all going to be 'new routes' aren't they since it will be the first Winter season Jet2 have a presence there. Unless you are saying that routes such as Geneva and Prague have never been served from BHX before, which I'm sure you're not.
Are you working for the PR department at BHX?

That's a bit harsh! They are new routes for Jet2 at BHX; and it's good to see some imagination in offering Prague and Krakow.

I see West Atlantic have increased their share of the Royal Mail Contract. Is this at Jet2's expense? Or Titan?

Jet2's next 738 G-JZHL (c/n 63568) is due into MAN in the early hours (29/10/16) on delivery. Believe it's in the holidays livery.

Jet2 didn't tender for most of the Royal Mail this time round. I understand that Royal Mail chose 1 operator to provide their service, so I assume Titan missed out if they submitted a tender.
